TI's complete online Citizenship Report was prepared using the Sustainability Reporting G3.1 Guidelines from the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The Citizenship Report meets the standards for GRI's self-assessed Application Level A and expands upon previously published citizenship reports.

The report is divided into seven sections and 35 subsections. The report is navigable using the GRI index or the drop-down menus (above) from each section of the report: Company, Products, Environment, Employees, Community, Advocacy and Governance.

Corporate citizenship is TI’s commitment to be accountable for its social, environmental and economic impact around the world. We set high standards for our global operations and are focused on ethical business practices and compliance both inside the company and throughout our supply chain.

The information presented in this report is verified through rigorous internal review processes. We strive to ensure the information presented is accurate and complete.

We review our report data collection systems annually to ensure they cover the breadth and scope of the information needed. We also conduct a gap analysis to ensure all information of importance to stakeholders is comprehensively addressed. In addition, we have begun efforts to validate our current data management practices to ensure that consistent and verifiable environmental data collection and reporting methodologies are used.
